When to Change 1994 Hyundai Elantra Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Elantra’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Hyundai recommends changing your 1994 Elantra’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Elantra may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Hyundai if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Elantra. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Hyundai Elantra

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Elantra engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Hyundai Elantra engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Elantra spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
